Those are some reactions I got from people during this first week in Kuantan after the 3-month break. This is also the eighth week of the change of dietary intake I did since 21st May this year. But people don’t get me wrong. I don’t avoid carbohydrates (or also simply called carbs). It’s just that I avoid rice from my daily meals. So to say that I’m doing Atkin’s diet or what so ever, is also totally wrong. Even the word ‘avoid’ doesn’t perfectly suit what actually happens in me. I don’t have the appetite to eat nasi putih anymore but I do have it for nasi goreng kampong, my favorite menu. Plus, if I take nasi putih I tend to eat more and more and that actually is the cause for extra bumper around my waist. Huhu...
I love it when people ask me “till when that you want not eating rice?” I’ll reply, “till it’s 3 months.”
Then they’ll ask further, “after that, what would you do? Eat rice like usual?” And I’ll reply “We’ll see.”
Considering the Ramadhan is around the corner which is going to be in the middle of September so I’m thinking of continuing the diet till then.
One reason that I forgot to mention previously for the change of dietary intake is for the health’s sake. It’s almost true to say the gene of diabetes is in me taking into account both of my parents are diabetics and so are my late grandparents. Thus, as prevention is better than cure, where am I wrong with this change of lifestyle?
Ok people. I’m open to suggestions and comments. Let’s be supportive! Hohoyeah!
